Notre Dame’s 2025 recruiting class has taken a hit.

CJ May, a blue-chip edge defender out of Alabama, told Hayes Fawcett of On3 that he is no longer committed to play for Marcus Freeman’s program. May confirmed the news, asking his social media followers to weigh in on where he’ll ultimately land.

A standout of Highland Home (Alabama) High School, May is listed as measuring 6-4, 225 pounds. On the 247Sports Composite, May is rated 4-stars, the No. 15 player in the state of Alabama, No. 19 Edge and No. 253 prospect overall nationally.

May committed to Notre Dame back in September. Al Washington and Al Golden led ND’s recruitment of May.

Since his commitment, he received an offer from Texas A&M on Dec. 31 to play for former Duke coach Mike Elko. He also took an unofficial visit to in-state program Auburn. Other programs that have shown interest include Arkansas, Clemson, Georgia, Miami, Ole Miss, Penn State and Tennessee.

With May out of the class, Notre Dame still has verbal commitments from 13 pledges, including 8 4-star prospects. The class ranks No. 1 nationally on the Composite.

We’ll see where Freeman’s staff turns next at Edge with May out of the class.
